Childhood Comics: ED WOOD MOVIES

James / October 23rd, 2011

Here’s some Ed Wood comics I drew. (age 15) This is the last of my childhood comics that I have available to post. At least, for a little while. We’ll see what happens. I’m not sure at the moment if/how I’m continuing Sunday Comics, but next Sunday will be a comic from Mike Matei, perfect for Halloween Eve… or All Hallow’s Eve Eve. Or…. whatever, October 30th.

    Did you think these movies were actually good back then or did you always know they were cheesy?

    Dude, I totally used to draw little cartoons/comics as a kid too. Fun stuff!

    This is awesome. You must have made a comic out of everything. LOL

    Hey James, thanks for this series. It’s interesting to get a glimpse into your young mind, and your early creative process. Strangely enough, you do a better job of telling Ed Wood’s story than Ed Wood ever could.

    These comics are so much fun to read! I used to draw my own comic books, too, when I was a kid. Unfortunately, none of them have survived, but I don’t think they were as good as these. I mean, like someone says, they are cheesy in a way, yet somehow very cool and engaging.

    All Hallow’s Eve IS Halloween. I know a lot of people think its the day before Halloween but it’s not.

      That’s why it says All Hallow’s Eve EVE.

    The sad thing is, these are actually the authentic scripts for “Plan 9” and “Bride”.

    @HiIamQ – I think he knew they were cheesy. In the Plan 9 comic, he seems to be indicating tombstones falling over in the first panel, like the cardboard ones in the movie. Also, it looks like he’s making fun of the way Not-Bela-Lugosi pulled a cape over the bottom half of his face to make it look like he’s Bela Lugosi — and, at the age of 15, I’m pretty sure a horror movie buff like James would have known enough about the REAL Bela Lugosi to tell the difference.
